Hello my name is Yuki. I am a 4th year undergraduate film major at
University of California, Berkeley. I am currently working on my Honor's
Thesis on Japanese Film Noir with supervision from Miryam Sas. My thesis is
going to focus mainly on Ishii Teruo's Line series and few of his other
films which utilize noir aesthetics. I will be using Ishii's films as a
representative to explore the utilization of Noir
aesthetics/themes/narratives to think about the genre "Japanese Film Noir".

I have been having trouble finding sources that discuss japanese fim noir,
the japanese appropriation of noir aesthetics, or Teruo Ishii extensively. I
have been using specific films to do my searches, but if anyone knows any
books/articles (in either japanese or english) that talk about it, it would
be greatly appreciated. If anyone has any comments too feel free to email me
about it.

Thank you for your time,

Yuki Nakayama
